That is not the case with the Dolce & Gabbana Fall Collection. The images are breathtaking and even behind the camera lens, you can see there are spectacular pieces walking towards you. I cannot fathom what they must have looked like up close and personal, especially that teal leather embroidered/bedazzled jewel-tone glove and clutch combo [heart skips a beat].

The term "the photo doesn't do it justice" really comes in to play when you discuss runway shows. If you are lucky enough to see the clothing up close, whether backstage or from the front row, you see amazing workmanship that is sometimes jaw dropping. Truly. And then you go online later in the day to see the collection again and it's not even close to that initial feeling you had.

It's no surprise that I'm just as in love with this season's Edun presentation as I was with last September's. The mixing of textures, layering of fabric and woven details were still the standout on each and every model that walked by. Even the star-packed front row couldn't divert my eyes from what was being showcased before me. And, of course, the mission of the brand to to promote trade in Africa is the best kind of inspiration that can grace NYFW.
This is just the second collection, guys. Good things are going to keep coming...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... I truly dislike Valentine's Day. And I'm not saying that because I'm single. If Joseph Gordon Levitt fell from the sky, onto my couch, and we fell fastly in love before Friday [which would happen because I'm very lovable], I would still feel the same way. Maybe it has to do with all the cheesy pink shit...
Now that that is out of the way, what I do think girls should do on Valentine's Day, is take the time to treat themselves to something nice. Whether it's something as simple as a candle, something that I am not going to mention on here, or maybe a nice a splurge on some luxe lingerie [who said someone had to see it to wear it?], it's nice to think about yourself from time to time.
Here are some of my picks:
Here are some of my picks:
Little bit of sexy. Viktor and Rolf 'Flowerbomb' Eau de Parfum [my signature scent], Diptyque 'Mimosa' candle, Kiki de Montparnasse bra and brief [more budget friendly version here], Byredo Parfums 'La Tulipe' Eau de Parum.
More appropriate for public viewing. J.Crew Mint Spike Necklace [similar style here], LeiVanKash Black Onyx Haya Hand Cuff [yes, hand jewelry], 10 Crosby Derek Lam Embossed d'Orsay Flat, Elizabeth and James Python-Embossed Drawstring Backpack
